Competition: Win tickets to see singer Kara Jackson live in Dublin

GCN is giving away two tickets to a lucky reader to see the fantastic singer and poet Kara Jackson.

Kara Jackson, an American singer and poet, sits in a casual pose against a cream coloured background. She looks at the camera with a confident look as her warm brown hair wisps around her face.

Thought-provoking singer, songwriter and poet Kara Jackson is coming to Dublin on September 10 to perform emotional hits from her debut album Why Does the Earth Give Us People to Love? and we’ve got two tickets to give away to one lucky reader!

Whether you have heard her name before or are hearing about her for the first time, Kara Jackson’s headline show at the Workman’s Cellar is not one to miss.

Kara harnesses her unique writing style blending emotional folk music and poetic alt-country that leaves her listeners with a full heart. With many influences of her family’s southern roots, her velvety voice is softly accompanied by a gently plucked guitar in every performance.

Why Does the Earth Give Us People to Love? was released in March this year, following a theme of asking open-ended questions. Her endlessly engaging attempt of trying to provide answers leaves listeners pausing for thought and exploring their inner worlds. Kara invites audiences to process their grief by asking deep questions such as, “How do we have the audacity to love in spite of everything invented to deter us from it?”


Kara Jackson, an American singer and poet, sits in the center of the poster as she is surrounded by a beautiful and intricate handdrawn frame. Information about her show at the Workman's Cellar is written below her.

Tickets to see Kara Jackson live at the Workman’s Cellar in Dublin are on sale now, starting at €16.35. But if you’re feeling lucky, GCN has a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky  reader! For a chance to win and attend the unmissable gig, simply answer the following question:
